My name is Kristina Redd, and I am a proud student of the greatest of all academic homes – the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill! (Go Tar Heels!)

I am a pre-medicine student with a double major in Global Studies and Journalism. Both of these majors require concentrations; thus, I have found my “niche” in Global Health in Africa as my Global Studies concentration, in addition to the Public Relations concentration under the Journalism curriculum. This year, I am pursuing an entrance into UNC’s School of Journalism.

In the future, I will pursue medical school – hopefully becoming a general surgeon who works as a medical journalist or medical correspondent of a national news network. (Our health is important to us; let’s share ways in which we can maintain good health!)

In this blog, you will find blurbs on all things medicine, public health, and other fascinating stories pertaining to science.

Feel free to click, scroll, and browse all of the information that I have provided!
